The judging on this show is pathetic. They lob mostly softballs when it comes time to critique them.

I was going to comment about how PP hasn't been in the Ford commercials hardly at all (if ever??). I think I saw a mention in another AI thread about him still being pretty sick.

TMZ has a story about how bad off he is. Apparently he needs surgery ASAP.
Link.

As a fellow kidney stone sufferer I feel for him! The article said he had a stent put in, and I mentioned in a previous thread that I thought a stent (I've had them) would make it uncomfortable to kick his leg and stomp like he does.

If you see how animated he was in his audition compared to now, I think it's pretty clear he's not doing it as much because it hurts but his body still does it a little because he just can't help it.

Poor guy.

I wish I could pick stocks like AI. After the first live show a few moths back I called p2 to win with Sanchez or the elfin girl with the speech impediment to come in second. Joshua was so bad he was not on my map and I had no idea the judges would pimp him so much so that threw me off a bit with the #3 idiol.

All you need to do is pick the cute, Laid back white guy that the Tweens and middle aged women will voting for . no need for me to watch next year beyond the first live show.

Funny, the vote for the worst site finally gets ther winner. What you say it's not over? It's been over for weeks and weeks. P2 wins easy.

True story.

Didn't know British folks actually had speech impediments. Good to know.

Wow, after reading these posts I feel like most people are watching a different show than I am. Jessica and Joshua are both much better singers than Phillip. Neither Jessica nor Joshua sing the type of music I would buy, but they have amazing voices. Phillip sounds like he's singing with food in his mouth (not sure how else to describe it, but it just sounds to me and my wife like he's doing an over exaggerated caricature of Dave Matthews). What am I missing?

Well that was fun!
I could mostly remember everyone but there were a few "Oh yeah... what was his name?"

There are many of them now making a living in entertainment other than singing- as bad a show as it is it is still an excellent platform for a savvy contestant. If they're smart and understand the power of networking they can parlay the exposure into a career of some sort.

I thought there was a season or two where I didn't watch, but apparently not - I recognized at least a few people from each season in the posters.

This year for Mother's Day, among other things I gave my wife a floor ticket to see the 2012 tour (and a second ticket so she can take our daughter - they're both big fans; I mostly just listen from the other room while it's on). They are so excited to go. It'll be my daughter's first time going to a concert.

This is me too. There wasn't a single season I could name every person on that poster. Some of them like the season Lee won, I don't know most of them by name.

Awww that was very nice of you!
I'm nicer because not only did I get my little sister VIP tickets to go but apparently I'll be the one taking her. Not my best thought out present!

To be fair, I was paraphrasing myself. When I made my prediction on March 8 many thought she speech impediment. Also, as far as I know it is possible to have an English accent and speech impediment.

Turns out the story was it's a bad mix of an English and Texas accent that only sounds like a speech impediment on certain words like Pel-fect.

Anyway, my point was I knew the winner long ago and had a good idea who the#2 idol would be.

Next year, I'll make sure put spoiler tags on my early uncanny predictions.

Interesting. Seems like a higher percentage of white people in the more recent years. I wonder why?

To be honest Johnny most people were raving about Jessica and Phillip in that top 13 thread.

Here is a sample from the same thread.

Top 13

What was interesting was to see many of these people turn on Jessica later on.

I really felt like the show was pushing for Joshua, so I was pretty shocked when Philip Phillips got it. My wife and I both cheered. I think this will make for a more interesting finale with Jessica for the win.

We started out predicting Jessica would win, then she kind of faded in the middle and we started liking Elise for awhile. At this point it would be cool if Philip Philips won, simply because he is so different, but I'd be happy for Jessica if she won too.

For the record, I have NEVER been a Jessica fan.

P2, I've liked since day one.

But what do I know - I have a speech impediment.

Indeed. She was solid early on with "I Will Always Love You" but her breathing (or maybe that annoying low vibrato is intentional) made it really hard to enjoy her.

She started to sound like a less-than-perfect imitator. When she did IWALY on the finale she sounded great again.
